Do not use a PNG as favicon...

...or your Domino server will crash.

In the XPages all properties -> "page icon" you can define a favicon for the page.

Normally you use an image in ICO format, which all browsers understand. Some browsers like Firefox understand PNG images here, too. So you might come up with the idea to use a PNG as favicon for a XPage... but trust me, you don't want to do that!

Why? Because your Domino 8.5 server will crash if you open a XPage with a PNG favicon :-)

This is known to IBM and they try to fix it, either in the upcoming 8.5.1 or later.

Great post! I am just starting out in community management/marketing media and trying to learn how to do it well - resources like this article are incredibly helpful.
